Tumbleweed

Poem By Alfred Ramos

How can you ever find what you need?
How can you know if you’ll succeed?
When you’re running around like tumbleweed
I tried so hard to plant the seed
But you grew so wild like a weed
Rolling past relationships like a tumbleweed
I’m puzzled, perplexed how to proceed
I cannot gauge your speed
The wind pushing you across the plains like tumbleweed
And like a family cat that been treed
You turn your head to all precautions you must heed
No chains can hold down my rambling tumbleweed
And like a caged tiger waiting to be freed
You more than willingly take the lead
Chasing the freedom of the tumbleweed
And if it looks like what I’m asking for is greed
Then you’re seeing signs you cannot read
The cold dark wayward path of the tumbleweed
And if it was only one more mouth to feed
It would provide solace indeed
And increase the chances of catching my tumbleweed
But it’s for more than her that I bleed
And it’s for your understanding that I plead
You see I once too, was a tumbleweed

A Mother's Love

I held her hand as tight as I could
Even though I knew it would not do much good
Her breath was shallow and weak
If only my eyes could speak

***dead And Gone

I didn’t attend your funeral
I hated you that much
I did send roses
The thorns for you to touch

I Keep Telling Myself

I keep telling myself
That things will change
New ideas will rise for us to rearrange
Chaos will bury itself in red tape

Inside

Inside
There’s a little boy
A fragile tin soldier toy
I know who he is

Love Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Love doesn’t live here anymore
It walked out and slammed the door
It packed it memories and faded photographs
It took its dreams, it took its laughs

When Love Is The Answer

Admit to your deepest desire
Know that your path is lined with fire
Crying will only get you so far
It won’t help you cleanse the scar
